Jungle

Just a quick card today for the freshlymadesketches. I knew immediately what it will look like when I saw the sketch, and surprisingly stuck with that idea in my mind throughout the project.
I flipped the sketch and used a wrapping paper with bamboo that I had in my stash for years as the central background piece. Additionally, I used a green background paper which I punched at the endes to make it a bit more interesting. Between them, I used a dark green ribbon. In the lower part of the card I placed a cute little panda bear I found on pinterest. To make it look like it came right out of the jungle, I cut it out exactly on the lines and used 3D pads to fix it on the background. 
In the end, I added three buttons which I decorated with raffia. 

challenges:
- freshlymadesketches
- cardz4guys: exotic/jungle/wildlife
- craft-alnica: oriental inspired
- come and get it: things that start with B (bamboo, bear, buttons)

  1. This is lovely! Even the raffia on the buttons looks as if it's come straight from the bamboo patch. Thanks for joining us at Cardz 4 Guyz
